High Justice begins Jerry Pournelle's own Future History, a universe which he shared with Larry Niven in their collaborative novel, The Mote in God's Eye.Here we see, with all the vivid detail for which Pournelle is known, the Fall of the West, and how in its death throes it gave birth to a society that would conquer the stars themselves, as real people battle desperate odds, both for their own survival and for something more - for High Justice.
